Homechoice: Networks

What IP addresses can I use on my LAN?

The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved the following three blocks of the IP address space for private networks:        -      -     -

However, HomeChoice use the 10.x.x.x range for their own internal network, and the set-top box seems to be allocated an IP in the 172.x.x.x range. If you were to use these ranges on your own network, you could find that you can't connect to the HomeChoice servers or other HomeChoice users due to a clash.

I recommend you use the 192.168.x.x range for your own internal network.
